the candidates who hired him, the republican candidates. in 2004 nevada state election officials looked into allegations that sproul . . . democrats who had registered through sproul's group, later told the reno gazette journal their names were not on the rolls when they went to vote. that same year democratseptors leahy, and kennedy sent a letter asking for an immediate investigation against sproul. and nothing happened. and now nathan sproul is back. according to the l.a. times, the republican national committee paid sproul's company, $3 million to recommendster vote fors in colorado nevada north carolina, and virginia this year. and the romney campaign paid sproul an additional $70,000 for five month's of work but he is being investigated again. florida election officials aledge that sproul's company submitted over 100 fraudulent registrations this year. they dismissed the incident of this fraud as the case of quote, one bad apple in an organization. this from the party that has otherwise by screaming about voter fraud all year. when it comes to voter fraud me t

are not always the best way to understand the state of the election. and for that, you've got to go to the swing states. and sorry, mitt, but the pictures there are not much better. a "new york times" cbs quinnipiac poll shows that big margins exist among likely swing state voters. in pennsylvania, the president is up big. 54% to romney's 42%. he leads romney 53% to 44% in florida and in ohio, he leads by a full 10 points! 53% to 43%. the last one is really important because if history is any guide the road to the white house really does run through ohio. no republican has ever won the white house without winning the state of ohio. no democrat has done it for over a half a century. so both candidates are in the state today and not believe me, for the first time. in fact, they have made these two candidates a combined 68 visits there this but today, romney was trying out a brand new strategy. which was expressing emotion. he replaced his usual stories about small business owners succeeding all on their own with stori

the choice in this election is clear. i couldn't have said it better myself. >> jennifer: i can now tell you exactly what mitt romney is going to say in wednesday's presidential debate, and i'm going to tell you how you back home can rebut his claims. how do i know what he is going to say? because a talking point's memo from the campaign to romney's surrogates and allies it was leaked today. i know from experience that a memo coming like this just two days before a debate it is intended to prepare the surrogates and allies to parrot really the candidate to repeat and reinforce his position on every issue. so you are ready to hear it and it makes his ability to defend at the debate that much so that's what this memo is all about. wednesday's debate is going to focus on three of the most contentious issues of the campaign. the focus will be on the role of government, the economy and health care. mitt romney has a history of shall we sa waffling a little bit on these important issues we even have a collection of mitt's flip flops here inside the war room but this

right at the moment of election where you have this hard core opposition as clinton did with newt gingrich. and then people say maybe he'll unleash in the second term. i think people are concerned with obama as well, who is the real obama. >> eliot: yeah. but we do know that mitt romney is being sunk but his apparently feelty to the far right. and david stockman said this guy is a joker. >> that's right. they look at romney and say this is too far. the right has gone to an extreme that we never would have envisioned or endorsed and the country cannot sustain. this deep of cut to the social net and economic engine will spell chaos. >> eliot: part of the reason for this is there is this huge chasm when the imagery of ronald reagan and the reality of how he governed. the article is titled "who is driving mitt," eric bates, executive editor of "rollingstone" magazine, thank you for time you tonight. >> thank then how'd i get this...

said the day it was released was the day that mitt romney lost the election. i wouldn't go that far except to say that it was yet another unforced error that continued to bring the focus on to romney and not president obama. looking forward to the debate perhaps that's a chance for mitt romney to shift the focus. we're starting to see him try to make the case in a more empathetic way. this video that he cut recently this new ad where it's a straight to camera delivery. we're going to need to see more of that, but it's really a tough hill for him to climb because so much of the negative focus has been on him for so many weeks now. >> eliot: i think you are right, josh. and this is the -- the debates are his hail mary maybe he'll get some assist from some bad referees who will call the play the wrong way. what should he do to get the completion in the end zone? >> i think when the debates matter is when somebody makes a really big unforced error like gerald ford insisting there is no soviet domination of poland. the problem is the president is pretty good at this. so i

out there they're trying to humanize mitt romney. if you are 40 days away from the election and you're still humanizing your candidate you've got a problem. that's especially relevant in a state like ohio, a lot of middle class, working class voters, a state like virginia, a lot of white, working class voters. they've got a problem on their hands here. >> eliot: alina, you said and you've been following the money in this campaign. huge gobs of money being spent. i'm going to suggest something that's a little counterintuitive. i don't think the money matters as much as we think it does. with all of the money the republicans have spent, they were unable to shake the 47% video or the attack about mitt romney and his taxes or the imagery of bain capital. all of the money in the world can't change certain objective realities that the public sees. am i wrong about this? are people going to say maybe money isn't so outcome determinative. >> we do have examples, throwing a bunch of several million dollars into massive
